The Jolly Mon is a song that was written by Jimmy Buffet in 1985 after sailing through the Caribbean with his daughter Savannah Jane Buffett.
Later, in 1988, the song was turned into a picture book with illustrations that would help readers to see the magic of the song. There is also a good chance that the writers of the Pirates of the Caribbean Movies were inspired to name the boat that Jack Sparrow uses in the beginning of the movie "The Curse of the Black Pearl" the Jolly Mon because of this song and book.

Remember that when we listen we use our ears, we use our eyes, we do NOT use our mouths, and usually we will NOT use our bodies.
The notes ON the LINES and IN the SPACES
Like a Shish Kabab, the LINE goes through the head of each note for a LINE NOTE.
Just like when you get in a sleeping bag and have the blanket ON TOP of you and UNDERNEATH you, notes that sit in a SPACE have a LINE on TOP and UNDERNEATH them.
Starting out with "B" and "A"...
